On Fairview Mountain, Lake Louise, Alberta

Megan has always had a love of and appreciation for art. A chance encounter with a Tom Thomson print in a local antique store 20+ years ago was the beginning of her artistic journey. Canada’s Group of Seven was a new find for Megan and she wanted to learn more. She enrolled in art history courses at the local college and by the end of the second semester she knew that further education would be geared towards art making.

Drawing and watercolour classes and workshops were the beginning and once Megan tried acrylic paints she knew she had found her medium. She was completely hooked by the vibrant colours as well as the versatility of the medium.

Megan considers herself a self-taught artist and works primarily from her own photos. With brush on canvas, she expresses her interpretation of the beauty of the landscape. Megan was born and raised in Quesnel, British Columbia and spent many enjoyable summers camping, fishing, and exploring the Cariboo Chilcotin as a child and again as an adult with her own family. Megan and her husband are avid hikers which provides an endless supply of inspirational material from explorations of BC and Alberta including Vancouver Island, the Canadian Rockies, and the Okanagan north to Tumbler Ridge so far.

In 2018 Megan became a supporting member of the newly formed Central Interior Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists. In 2019 her work was successfully juried and she became an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
